As per the link, it looked like the G4's we were talking about use 8watts to the
athlons 54 watts. But this is where I get lost. Given that it seems the components
must draw the major load as why else have 250, 300, plus sized power supplies.
I have no idea how much power goes out the window keeping the memory running etc.
Can someone fill me in.
I've always kind of wanted to rip out multiple motherboards and run them from a
power source but have been unsure how to determine what kind of load each board would
building a mac.
YES, maybe a MAC Geek could but the parts are not as cheap or easily available
as PC parts.
